Ferdinand Schuster and his architectural work are the focus of an exhibition in the Haus der Architektur in Graz, which opens on 02.07.2020.

The architect Ferdinand Schuster (1920-1972) is probably one of the most important representatives of post-war Austrian building culture. In Kapfenberg and Graz he realized church, industrial, leisure, educational and residential buildings. Schuster’s work was always developed in the context of his reflections on the cultural, social and political dimensions of building. He also conveyed this attitude in his teaching of architecture at the Graz University of Technology, where he held the chair of architecture and design from 1964 to 1972. Between 1950 and 1972, Ferdinand Schuster shaped Austrian post-war architecture with 140 building and planning projects. It was always his aim as an architect to be “the advocate of the people” and to create improvements in the living environment.
